Summary 2015 marks 100 years since the Gallipoli landing, 70 years since the end of WWII, 40 years since the end of the Vietnam War and 4 years since end of the Iraq War. These conflicts have shaped our world, and as ANZAC Day approaches, 'SBS Remembers' is a thought provoking season of movies, docos and drama that examines war from a variety of angles.From the development of the machine gun and its devastating effect, to the trenches of WWI, the final chaotic days of the Vietnam War, Rumsfeld's take on the invasion of Iraq, and more.Neil Oliver looks at the development of the machine gun as a weapon of mass destruction remembering brave men of Skye killed in France as machine gun industrialised war slaughter. Both a personal and moving tribute to these men as well as a broader look at how the invention of the machine gun changed war forever.
